Movie Summary

Marcus Nispel
Released:
2007
Rating:
R

In the 9th century, a group of Vikings come to North America to conquer the native people. When the Viking boat is shipwrecked, Wampanoag Indians, also known as People of the Dawn, slaughter the Viking warriors, leaving only a 12-year-old boy as the sole survior. Although the Indians are wary of the Viking "Dragon People," they adopt their boy into their tribe and rename him Ghost in reference to his pale skin and blonde locks. After fifteen years pass, Ghost is a great Wampanoag warrior in love with Starfire, the daughter of a shaman named Pathfinder. When the Viking warriors return to the New World in order to finish their conquest, they come after Ghost's adoptive Wampanoag family. Guided by the wisdom of Pathfinder, Ghost must try to save his Indian clansmen from his own blood kin.
